Passed in 2013, the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) gives the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) more control over the manufacturing of drugs in the United States. Starting in 2015, with full compliance by 2023, most pharmaceutical drugs now must be traced, verified, and serialized for the entire supply chain, from manufacturer to pharmacy. The supply chain regulatory deadline of 2023 will be here soon; however, now is the time for all industry stakeholders, manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors and dispensers, to take a step back and plan strategically. Now is the time to begin preparation and understand the process regarding digital supply chain with track-and-trace capabilities. Companies in the drug supply chain should be looking not only at the trace and track software but should also be looking very closely at choosing the right computational backend as well. As the healthcare business intelligence grows, so does its potential, creating a situation where choosing the right back-end can become as important as the front-end software decision. Furthermore, revisit FDA’s Guidance - Drug Supply Chain Security Act Implementation and understanding the fundamentals, including identification of suspect product and the notification process and much more.
